Supporting Your Child’s Reading 

Research shows that the single most effective way to improve a child’s reading ability is by reading! It is recommended that Primary aged school children should read at home every day for 20 minutes. This time should be an easy and fun process, not one which creates a daily battle. The easiest way for this to happen is to make reading an enjoyable experience for all involved by mixing up the reading that takes place. This might include:

  • Your child(ren) reading to you
  • You reading to your child(ren)
  • Taking turns to read a page each
  • Your child(ren) reading silently
  • Your child listening to an ebook
